Replication known issues

The following table lists the replication known issues in this release:

Table 1. Replication known issues
Issue ID Subject/Functional area Description Workaround/Resolution
192169 Incorrect statistics appear for replication of Avamar backup data on a Data Domain system When you replicate Avamar backup data from one Data Domain system to another Data Domain system, incorrect statistics appear for:
  • The file total in the avtar log file.
  • The progress bytes in the Activity Monitor in Avamar Administrator.
262220 Invalid certificate after upgrading and reconfiguring a replication destination server Reconfiguring the destination server for replication fails with the following an error message under the following conditions:Could not log in to remote destination. Check credentials and hostname or IP. Authentication failed.
  • After a replication is performed from a source Avamar server to a destination Avamar server that uses certification-based authentication.
  • Upgrading the destination server to a new version of Avamar.
  • Deleting the replication configuration.
The interim solution for this problem is to issue the following commands at the source server:
rm -rf /usr/local/avamar/etc/<destination server IP>
rm -rf /usr/local/avamar/etc/client/<destination server IP>
277208 Check for Remote backups before deletion not working During replication, when the Check for Remote backups before deletion option is selected, the server deletes the replication destination record even if remote backups exist on the replication destination system. NA
309113 Replication job that is canceled after partial creation or completes with an exception displays as VALID in the AUI If a replication job is canceled after being partially created on the destination system, or completes with an exception, the status of the job displays as VALID in the Asset Management window of the AUI, with no warning to indicate that any issue occurred. NA
309388 Restore of replicated backups fails when source and destination Avamar system that is attached to the same Data Domain You cannot perform a restore of a replicated backup when the system with the Avamar source backup and the destination system for the restore are attached to the same Data Domain. NA
309501 Replication status was failed at Avamar destination but replication was actually successful Due to a timeout that occurs when there are 5000 or more clients in a domain, the destination system for a replication displays the replication job as "Failed" even though the job was actually completed successfully, as indicated on the source. NA
309624 Replication fails if both IPV4 and IPv6 records exist in the DNS server for the Avamar destination Replication to the Avamar destination in a pure IPv6 environment (where both IPv4 and IPv6 records exist in the DNS server but IPv4 is not configured) fails, with an error message in the Activity logs of Avamar Administrator indicating "Unable to connect to the IPv4 address of the Destination Avamar." Remove the IPv4 entry from the DNS.
